Target: Tutow Germany
Missing Air Crew Report Details
USAAF MACR#: 03944
Date Lost: 13-Nov-43
Serial Number: #42-52097
Aircraft Model B-24
Aircraft Letter: "0"
Aircraft Name: "LONESOME POLECAT" 19th Mission
Location: eastern Baltic Sea
Cause: Fighters Crew of 10 MIA/KIA

The target, the airfield and air park at Tutow, was a continuation of the assault on the German Air Force, concentrating again major production of FW-190s.

MISSION LOSS CIRCUMSTANCES: Any accounts from the returning aircrews on the fate of this aircrew are illegible in this MACR, However, a Target Route Chart appears to depict the downing of this aircraft over the eastern Baltic Sea area near or just north of the small island near the town of Peenemunde. There were no German reports connected with this file thus nothing is known further about the loss of this plane and crew except they had encountered heavy enemy fighter attacks just south of Lualand Island.

INDIVIDUAL ACCOUNTS OF CREWMEN FATES: None exist. The probability is strong that this crew was lost over water and went down without further identity being discovered due to the fact that all members are recorded on the WALL OF THE MISSING at Cambridge Cemetery, England.
